Option Pricing with a General Market Point Process


  • Prigent, J.L.


This paper examines the impact of a random number of stock prices changes on the valuation formula for options. The model introduces the structure of the general marked point process (MPP). The kind of models allows to take in account more general distributions of time interarrival: they need no longer to be deterministic or exponential with a constant parameter like in usual jump-diffusions models.
